Orbit® 3 Digital Probes with In-Line Connector

Product Announcement from Ametek Solartron Metrology

Solartron Metrology, the world leader in Digital Gauging Probe innovation introduces an accurate and innovative measuring solution whereby a Digital Probe and Electronics are connected with an In-Line Connector. The In-Line Connector can be mounted close to the probe so that the probe can be replaced without having to unthread/thread the cable. It can also be mounted on the Probe Interface Electronics (PIE) module.

Solartron Metrology uses a dedicated Digital Probe which has much better screening for magnetic and electrical immunity. The In-Line Connector feature allows flexibility while maintaining a very high resolution, excellent linearity and a high data speed of the Orbit® 3 system. Probes can be replaced without any reprogramming of the controlling software. 

Small diameter of the connector allows easier threading through a machine for replacement. It has a lightweight, corrosion resistant glass reinforced thermoplastic body, with IP67 protection against dust and water ingress.
